Drops makes server uploading drag-and-drop easy

updated 01:15 am EST, Tue February 15, 2011

Menubar item can return shortened URL for pasting

German developer Christian Kienle has released a new menubar application called Drops, a simple FTP uploader that can manage multiple accounts, copies the resulting web URL to the clipboard automatically, can shorten the web URL using bit.ly, and can even be set to automatically zip files and folders before uploading.

Once installed, Drops sets up a simple teardrop-shaped icon in the menubar. From here, users can set preferences and favorite FTP sites. After setup, simply dragging a file onto the menubar drop will transport it to the default site or allow the user to pick from the pre-set destinations. The icon pulses green to let the user know the transfer is taking place. The URL is automatically copied to the clipboard for easy pasting into e-mails or other documents.

Drops sells for $1 on the Mac App Store and requires OS X 10.6 or later, but also requires a 64-bit processor meaning Intel Core 2 Duo or higher -- Intel Core Solo or Intel Core Duo-based machines will not be able to run this software.
